the bus company's paperwork. >> yes. i think there are some questions about how recordkeeping has been kept and also, how, you know, how vehicles are being maintained by many of the large tour bus companies regulated by the state. >> reporter: kim who is running for state senate said while tour buses are regulated by the state, she would like to see regulatory powers to local governments especially in san francisco where tour buses crowd the streets. >> without having more information, my guess is some of the companies either don't regularly maintain all of their vehicles. maybe cut corners. to get all of their bus' out to do more business. and that is where i think local regulation can help. >> reporter: joe vasquez, kpix5. >> of the 20 people hurt, six are still in the hospital tonight. this caused a brief scare in san jose this afternoon. a downed power line sparked this gas fire but they couldn't put it out right away. they had to wait for pg&e to come in and shut off the gas first. surprisingly, the damage from
the fire was minimal. the building itself is the reason. >> the building construction pretty fortunate in the fact that it is cinder block. as opposed to wood frame production. i think that insulated the contents of the building and protected it from the radiant heat of the burning gas. >> there was no need for evacuation. the building was empty at the time. it is a hot new trend in health and fitness. a machine that promised to freeze away your pain. but when a spa worker in reno recently died in one, we wanted to know is it safe? devin fehely found out, no one in california is checking. >> reporter: business is booming, the drop, a cryo

>> reporter: he says protocols are also not followed in another case in dallas in which a woman suffered third degree burns on her arm. >> we make it clear to everyone, nothing wet, no metal on your skin. >> reporter: the question for consumers is how do you know your spa is following the safety guidelines? the simple answer is you don't because no one, not the federal government, the state, or even your county health department is regulating and monitoring cryo therapy centers. >> you can get frostbite, skin blisters, et cetera. because, we don't know how these chambers are actually regulated. >> this is called the cool mini. >> reporter: doctors have used fda approved targeted therapy for years but the claims that it can repair and tighten skin and burn calories cannot be substantiated. >> we found there was nothing peer reviewed specifically in the use of it for weight loss
or skin toning or skin brightening. >> reporter: so what about faster recovery for athletes? big names like floyd mayweather swear by it. but stanford professor sports medicine dr. michael frederickson is not convinced. >> i don't think there is enough literature to say that it would be beneficial for them. i think we could say that as far as we know, it is not harmful. >> reporter: owner skylar is convinced he is offering a positive safe experience. >> if you look at who is coming in, they have usf fighters. san jose sharks. they have oakland raiders. they have the best professional athletes in the world coming in here. >> reporter: and here in san jose, the cold therapy trend shows no sign of cooling off. >> once i'm done,ly be getting another 20 pack after my ten pack. that is how good it is. >> reporter: devin fehely, kpix5. >> full body cryo therapy has been around decades in europe, but studies disagree how
